Akshay Kumar’s latest release Samrat Prithviraj showed an upward trend at the box office with a collection of Rs 16.10 crore on Sunday. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#SamratPrithviraj gets the much-required push on Day 3… Decent weekend, with metros coming on board on Sunday… Mass circuits very strong… Monday biz crucial, needs to cover lost ground on weekdays… Fri 10.70 cr, Sat 12.60 cr, Sun 16.10 cr. Total: ₹ 39.40 cr. #India biz.”
Akshay Kumar’s Samrat Prithviraj is facing tough competition from Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which has been ruling the box office ever since its release. In non-Hindi speaking belts, the Akshay starrer is competing with Vikram, starring Kamal Haasan, Fahadh Faasil and Vijay Sethupathi in pivotal roles.
Akshay Kumar has said that the historical drama is one of the most important films of his career and called it his ‘legacy project’. “‘Samrat Prithviraj’ is a very important film in my career. It is my legacy project because I’m getting to honour the legendary Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan. I’m fortunate that I’m getting to bring his heroism and life on screen. I hope this film inspires many to lead their life with strong values and get the courage to stand up against any and every evil. ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, to me, is a rare project,” he had said.
